The School of Information Studies (iSchool) at Syracuse University is pleased to welcome a new faculty member to its ranks. Stephen Wallace will join the faculty in August 2018 as a professor of practice, teaching courses in support of the iSchool’s programs in data science and data analytics.

Wallace received his Doctorate of Professional Studies in Computing from Pace University’s Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems. He holds an MBA from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute’s Lally School of Management, and a B.S. in Operations Management from Syracuse’s Whitman School of Management.

His career has spanned more than 30 years across the information technology spectrum in roles of increasing responsibility, ranging from IT director to vice president and CIO.

For the past five years, Wallace has worked as founder and managing partner for BizLitics, LLC, a small consulting firm that specializes in business analytics based solutions and services. BizLitics develops and delivers end-to-end solutions for clients that include data analysis and assessment; data integration and blending; data warehouse design and build; and advanced data visualizations.

Wallace has also taught a course on data mining and analytics at the Rochester Institute of Technology as an adjunct professor since 2014.

“I am excited to be joining the iSchool as a Professor of Practice, and I look forward to both teaching and collaborating with faculty, staff, and students on a variety of data science-related research projects,” said Wallace. “I believe my industry experience as an entrepreneur, consultant and CIO will provide students with a unique perspective on how data science professionals can help organizations improve their performance.  I also look forward to pursuing my research interests in both healthcare analytics and cognitive systems development.”
